“Yes, I’m pregnant,” the singer reportedly told the Spanish version of Cosmopolitan magazine inside their Sept. 2014 issue.
On Aug. 28, Shakira confirmed her news on her official Facebook page — where she has over 102 million fans.
“Yes, we are expecting our second baby!! Thank you all for your well wishes!”
Wow, how exciting! This will be the second child for her and her “footballer” boyfriend of four years, Gerard. The couple welcomed their first child, a son named Milan, in Jan. 2013 — just 19 months before confirming her second pregnancy.
Shakira & Gerard Met During The World Cup in 2010
Believe it or not, it was the 2010 World Cup that brought Shakira and Gerard together as a couple. At the time, Shakira was performing the event’s anthem “Waka Waka.”
They hit it off, and the rest is history! Three years after being together, Shakira gave birth to their adorable son, Milan. Even better? The entire family reunited at the 2014 World Cup when Shakira performed “La La La,” and later brought her toddler up onto the stage with her. So cute!
So, was Shakira pregnant during the World Cup in July 2014? Who knows — but it’s exciting to think that the sporting event has once again brought the couple luck!
